ParrotSec V.S Kali Linux

Recommended Posts

I'm just looking to get a good thread going. Time for the ultimate question!!

Which do you think is better, Kali or Parrot?

I used Kali myself when I first started out. But I found it to be RAM hungry and kind of clunky. But when I found ParrotSec I was instantly in love. I love the wider selection of tools and the beautiful GUI.

Having TOR and encryption tools built in doesn't hurt either 🙂

You guys comment what you think!!!

I have used both and think Kali is the way to go.  I did not like the parrot interface vs what kali is.  Parrot seems to be a knockoff of kali so that kali isnt the monopoly of this field.  all in all kali is the way to go as it is easier to use unless your a parrot die hard fan in which all power to you.

I think that parrot has a better UI, but Kali is more popular.

I have tried both Kali and Parrot and they're both fine at what they're meant to do. However, I feel like Kali is an elegant and refined set of carefully curated tools, whereas Parrot is like a someone just threw everything, including the kitchen sink, into a box because they could, without taking the time to test, thoroughly debug, and check whether or not the tools were redundant or even necessary. And I found the interface of Parrot to be a complete eyesore.

I agree.........Kali is easier on the layout and there is a massive community that will always point out how stupid I am😆

Parrot, well, it is still way behind in many respects and I agree again with your views on the monopoly land grab🧐

Will agree Kali is the way to go especially with all the community support and development!

Interesting........cannot believe that this is still available. Heard a rumour that they were closing in 2016, so pleased to see they are very much alive and kicking.

I have a spare windows laptop, so will have to go for it. 

Cheers as usual for sharing.😎

Having completed my Gentoo phase about 15 years ago (even going as far as performing a phase 1 install)....I think I'll pass 😂

 

I'm more inclined to stick with Kali from a support / maturity point of view. 

 

However, Parrot is looking a lot better these days, check out this Nullbyte video from a few months ago:

ive got a laptop with each. for strictly pentesting kali is the way to go. if you want a more complete os for like the one guy aid they threw the kitchen sink in. it ha sway more non pentesting tools so if u only have one laptop id say parrot. it copyied all kali tools and put in  programming and office stuff. since im not a secretary and still have a long way to go programming . i mainly use kali. plus in  my opinion they got the best guy working with them now actually re4son' is the only kernel i think ive ever used hes been helping me patch my razor 2 phone for nethunter  then i need to update my gpd pocket kernel that he made i watched for almost a year people complain not being able to get  alfa AC1200  and awus1900  drivers working his kernel had them the whole time. the parrot guys  break almost every other update. and what do u want as wallpaper a parrot or a dragon? ( i put the dragon on parrot anyway.  and for a pi kali the clear winner. all just my humble opinion if there is one in there. i ramble on about nothing alot
